Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) on Tuesday blasted the so-called "zero tolerance" immigration policy under President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions in a heated speech during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing.

Cummings accused the administration of creating "child internment camps."

"Even if you believe people entered our country illegally. Even if you believe they have no valid asylum claims in their own country. Even if you believe immigration should be halted entirely, we all should be able to agree that in the United States of America, we will not intentionally separate children from their parents. We will not do that. We are better than that. We are so much better," Cummings shouted.

"We should be able to agree we will not keep kids in child internment camps indefinitely and hidden away from public view. What country is that?" Cummings demanded of Republicans. "We do not need legislation. This is a policy, and understand this, this was a policy invented, implemented and executed by President Donald Trump."

"And so in conclusion, Mr. Chairman, we need you. Those children need you, and I'm talking directly to my Republican colleagues. We need you to stand up to President Trump," Cummings said as he fought back tears. "We need you to join us in telling him that we reject this mean policy. We need you to tell him to abandon this policy."
